8. Nope...sorry, I disagree with you...
If you're saying that people with opposing views cannot discuss things without devolving into the insane crap we see here, I couldn't disagree more. I have discussions with Hillary supporters in person that never devolve into this crap, for instance.

I hang out on what is primarily a movie site and can discuss politics with folks there where it doesn't devolve into this. I just gotta believe that most people even here hate this crap.

So disagree on issues and tactics? Sure, but this is far far far different from what we see here. Here we see an insane stream of posts and responses that try to drag the other candidate into the sewer, regardless if the poster really believes it or not.

Do we actually all believe that Shuster meant that Chelsea was a whore? Are we all honestly saying we've never heard the pimp thing in coloquial speech? Do we really believe Hillary will do ANYTHING to get elected? Do we really believe that Bill is racist - that Obama supporters are actually forming a cult? Do we really believe that a guy who got elected as president of the Harvard Law review is actually an empty suit, just like George Bush? Common...I'm guessing in the privacy of our own thoughts, none of us believe any of this. I'm just looking for a forum where people's actual beliefs are discussed - not these insanely bizarre talking points.
